It was a great experience with Adventure apes. First time in my life doing Nordic walking, and I absolutely loved it! Heidi, was very friendly and helpful at all the times. Beautiful landscapes, fresh air, nice exercise and a taste of the best doughnuts in town, delicious!
I definitely recommend to try this Nordic walking tour in Tampere city.

Thanks to Adventure Apes and Heidi, I had the pleasure to try to dip in a Finnish Ice Lake and then go in the local sauna full of happy locals. Unforgettable experience! It was perfect to be guided in that experience who would be so different on your own. The view was beautiful and the sauna experience so relaxing...
All the locals are in swimming suits, so don´t be afraid ;)

Thank you Emeline!

We are so proud of you! At first you were so scared about swimming in a frozen lake but you had the courage to do it! The first time is always the worst but then you know what is going to happen and you start loving it. And you wanted to dip in ice cold water all together four times! That is amazing! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed it. All the best and hope to see you again!

Although I had an idea of what I wanted to do during my trip to Finland, I was unsure I would accomplish it as a solo traveler on short notice. I sent an email with some ideas and my dates, and Heidi responded promptly with a plan that exceeded my expectations at a reasonable price. My experience included 2 nights at Heidi and Petri's beautiful home (complete with sauna), a hike in a Finnish wilderness area, a walking tour of Tampere, and of course ice-swimming in the lake followed by traditional public sauna. Heidi also provided hearty, traditional Finnish meals and snacks and all transportation/guide services. Would definitely recommend this to someone who, like me, doesn't do well on traditional guided tours. Heidi will listen to your ideas and customize the tour to your liking. She even made a special stop so that I could try black sausage, a local delicacy. Highlights include swimming in the frozen lake (definitely an experience) and learning survival skills such as starting a fire without matches and looking for wild berry plants during the nature walk. Thanks Heidi!

Thank you Shane! It was a pleasure to go on adventure with you. We are so proud of you as an ice swimmer. You swam four times on a frozen lake! It was great to talk with you about anything and we definitely enjoyed our time with you. Good luck with your new adventures at the other side of the world. Kippis!

As CEO, I had the pleasure of spending three days and two nights with the Adventure Apes for an internal company event. Heidi took excellent care of us and took care of everything. During the days we had some serious business to discuss, balanced by relaxing outdoor activities.

A nice long walk in the quiet countryside, under a star-filled sky to a cozy hut where we proceeded to make a fire and cook a lovely dinner together really was a superb team-building activity.

One evening we were visited by a local shaman at the house, which proved to be a very interesting experience indeed. Highly recommended!
